Founded in July 2011, MyTeksi is a for-profit social startup with a mission to revolutionise the taxi industry. Runner-up in the 2011 Harvard Business School (HBS) Business Plan Contest, its core product is a taxi-dispatch service with GPS-enhancements, allowing passengers to hail the nearest taxi with extreme ease.
In Malaysia, where this taxi booking mobile application originates, the “MyTeksi” brand is used. However, the “GrabTaxi” brand is being used regionally outside of Malaysia.
Since the app was launched to the Malaysian public in June 2012, thousands of taxi drivers have been using the MyTeksi smartphone-based technologies to receive bookings. In Malaysia, MyTeksi currently serves Klang Valley, Putrajaya and Cyberjaya, Seremban, Malacca, Johor Bahru, Kuching, and Penang.
Grab is Southeast Asia’s leading superapp, offering a suite of services consisting of deliveries, mobility, financial services, enterprise and others.

At Grab, every Grabber is guided by The Grab Way, which explains our mission and the operating principles on how we can achieve it together. We call these principles the 4Hs:
We work together as OneGrab to serve communities in Southeast Asia
We work to understand ground truths and drive improvements, big and small
We keep our word and steward our resources wisely to build and sustain trust
We are a constant work-in-progress, and we never stop learning to get better
